There were peaks at 22[degrees] and 28[degrees] in P-nZVI, which are associated with mineral dachiardite (Ca, Na, K, Al, Si and [H.sub.2]O) (Guler, Sarioglu 2014; Ersoy et al.
Dachiardite, a rare zeolite, was first described from San Piero in Campo, Elba, Italy by D'Achiardi in 1906.

The rest of the book is dedicated to the descriptive mineralogy of Elba, the type locality of seven species (elbaite, ilvaite, poilucite, dachiardite, bonattite, minguzzite and the recently described uranopolycrase).
Most of these are well known, such as elbaire, beryl, dachiardite, orthoclase, petalite, pollucite and spessartite.
The type localities for no less than eight of the approximately 49 known zeolites (barrerite, dachiardite, gismondine, merlinoite, montesommaite, phillipsite, pollucite, and willhendersonite) are within its borders.
